A leading manufacturer of off-the-shelf, stable, dairy-based food and beverage products suffered a ransomware incident. The company, which has been in business for more than 75 years and has revenues of over $200 million, is a fast-growing, top-tier sourcing partner for large, Fortune 500 companies nationwide.
A single ransomware incident caused this manufacturer to lose over $1 million a day due to business disruptions. The attack exposed all servers and endpoints and put the company at risk of losing data and access to raw materials. The company was forced to immediately shut down all production and operations, headquarters, and facilities – including servers and IT networks – to prevent further data loss. The magnitude of this breach required a specialized partner to help remedy the situation.
